The Power of Color – new color measurement systems from Heidelberg boost automation and harness artificial intelligence


  • New Prinect Easy Control – a flexible introduction to spectral color measurement technology
  • Prinect Axis Control – for high quality requirements in commercial and packaging printing
  • New Prinect Image Control 4 – enhanced quality assurance in label and packaging printing
  • Inline color measurement system Prinect Inpress Control with patented opaque white control
  • Self-learning Color Assistant Pro even more efficient with AI

“The Power of Color” is the slogan with which Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has chosen to mark the start of its new financial year as it introduces extensive additions for its color measurement and control systems and for the Prinect color workflow. The move is a response to the growing demands for efficient and dependable quality control in commercial, packaging, and label printing. In Prinect Easy Control, Prinect Axis Control, Prinect Image Control, and Prinect Inpress Control, Heidelberg offers the market four spectral measurement systems for print shops of all sizes and sheetfed offset presses of all performance classes.

End-to-end spectral measurement, patented color control, and a further enhanced Prinect color workflow facilitate rapid, low-waste job changes as well as quality monitoring and logging for production runs on all Speedmaster presses. Color control based on measured spectral values is the most promising method for achieving the desired colors as quickly as possible in commercial, label, and packaging printing. That is precisely why Heidelberg has continuously developed spectral color measurement technology.

“The consistent development of the entire Heidelberg spectral color measurement portfolio gives commercial and packaging print shops of all sizes the opportunity to optimize their color workflow, moving it closer to the smart print shop model – even as far as autonomous printing,” explains Jürgen Mittmann, Senior Manager Product Management Sheetfed at Heidelberg.
